    Scuff marks and resin

    I found a small white mark on my watch case and strap. I have no clue where it came from and I am unable to clean it off. You really can't see the mark if you are looking straight down at it, but when looking at it from an angle it becomes visible. I am generally very careful with my watches, and do not know how it could have gotten there. Has anyone else experienced a mark like this on a resin band? If so, any tips for removing it? Thanks.

    I found somewhere in the archives about using your blue jeans. I removed the mark on the strap using my jeans, and did worse damage trying to remove it on the bezel. I found this sandpaper pad that was 320 grit that is for sanding in between final finishes on wood. I used that and just rubbed it with my thumb, and it really improved the marks. The gloss is gone, and the scuff marks are now dull. Thanks.

    Great, I need all the help I can get when it comes to chicks! This sandpaper pad is a reusable foam pad that has 320 ultra fine grit on one side. I've used 2000 grit sandpaper on other projects so I was pretty scared to use 320 grit on my watch, but it's almost like a non-slip pad or something you would scrub dishes with. After using it on my watch I noticed some tiny black flakes on my hand, but I was unable to see the spot that it came off of on the watch. It dulled the gloss on both the mystery spot and the spots that I put on the bezel from rubbing my blue jeans on it.

    G's are meant to be worn and abused, and I've always said scuffs/dings/gacks add character to them. Now go rub some dirt on that G .

    right, a G without marks is like a mountainbike without dirt: boring and bourgeois
